Subject [Proposal] new prefix-name for custom skin properties
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 18:51:57 GMT
I submitted an issue about this.
I wanted to make sure we have consensus on -oam- instead of -ora- before 
I implement this.

         Key: ADFFACES-56
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ADFFACES-56
     Project: MyFaces ADF-Faces
        Type: Improvement


Thanks,
Jeanne
